Right Now! is one of Little Richard's lesser-known albums, released without much publicity on the United Records label. Despite this, the songs contained some of Richard's stronger material from his 1970s period, including "Chain Chain Chain", more commonly known under the title "Chain of Fools."


Right Now! was recorded in January 1973 possibly in Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, Alabama, and issued with no publicity as a low-budget LP. Richard himself recalled that: "We were about to start a tour and we needed some money. So Robert "Bumps" Blackwell and me got a deal for one album with an advance of ten thousand dollars from Kent Modern. We went into the studio and did it in one night. I did material we had worked out together. I prefer recording at night, my voice is in better shape then."[1]
